Gifts from a Donor-Advised Fund
Are you one of the many Americans who has established a Donor-Advised Fund?
If so, you have a ready-to-go method for making a gift to Oberlin.
Example: Megan & Darren, an Obie couple, set up a DAF at their local community foundation. A few times a year, they recommend to the foundation a set of gifts, to be disbursed to the charities they wish to support. They receive a charitable deduction when they place funds into the DAF, and the money grows tax-free within the fund.
Giving from a donor-advised fund is an ideal way for you to support charity during this time of increased need.
In addition, the DAF can serve as the basis for a legacy gift — you can specify that funds remaining in your fund after you are deceased be transferred to Oberlin.
You can find more information in our DAF info sheet.
